34-year-old actor Ben Woolf died in Los Angeles from a stroke after being struck by a car last week.
Ben Woolf was perhaps an unlikely TV star. Diagnosed with pituitary dwarfism as a child, he stood 4’4″. But Woolf found work in Hollywood nearly as soon as he arrived, giving up a teaching career to pursue acting. He worked on all four seasons of American Horror Story. Ryan Murphy, one of AHS’s creators, called Woolf one of the “most inspirational people I’ve met.” RIP Ben Woolf.
